About the performance

Three aspects of life, unencumbered by knowledge or reason, which are founts of great power and have been the inspiration behind many of our finest works of poetry, art and music. A musical journey with pieces byFranz Biber, Johann Sebastian Bach, Dietrich Buxtehude, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Lili Boulanger, Alban Berg, Pavel Haas, Andre Jolivet.

For the musicians of the orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, their series of chamber-music sessions is a wish come true. Taking their inspiration from key operas on the programme, they put together concert programmes linked to works that they hold particularly dearly. They are assisted in the project not only by singers from the ensemble but also by guests from outside.
